LA Kings' Fraser brings Stanley Cup to off-season home in central Alberta

SYLVAN LAKE, Alta. - Thousands of fans turned out in a small town in central Alberta to see the Stanley Cup.

Colin Fraser, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings, showed off the trophy he and his team won this year to fans in Sylvan Lake, about 160 kilometres south of Edmonton.

Fraser says he was overwhelmed with the turnout.

The 27-year-old has called Sylvan Lake his off-season home since moving to central Alberta to play for the WHL Red Deer Rebels ten years ago.

Fraser won his first Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks two years ago.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
